CUSTOM MADE as the name implies is the last outboard Shrimper to be personally built by master boat builder Ken Robertson -Founder of Cornish Shrimpers and fitted out by him in 2000 to be ready for the 2001 season to be specifically raced. The current owner, who used to crew for Ken is retiring. She is laid up at Smith’s Boat Yard , Rock on her launching trolley.
With a dark blue hull and yellow boot topping, copper coat anti fouling, spruce mast, white boom cover and yellow jib sleeve, she is a beautiful looking example of this popular boat. Off season, she has been stored under cover and professionally maintained.
The blue cabin cushions also fit in the cockpit for added comfort when cruising and below deck,is the standard gas ring, water carrier and bucket.Accessories include fenders, anchor, warps, boar hook,whisker pole, boarding ladder, ensign pole with red ensign, and life ring.An interesting novel addition is a black and white spinnaker for use when not racing.
The outboard motor, though little used has not been replaced as the next owner might prefer a modern lighter electronic version.
The cockpit layout contains a large central locker for storage.
